Woodward book claims Trump agreed that Kushner shouldn’t be working in the White House

President Trump reportedly agreed that his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner shouldn’t be working in the White House.

That revelation is among the many in Bob Woodward’s upcoming book, ‘Fear: Trump in the White House.’

Newsweek, which obtained an advance copy, notes that Trump’s view on the matter was expressed in June of 2017 amid reports that Kushner’s business dealings were being investigated by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Woodward reports that then-Chief of Staff Reince Priebus “could see the fires building around a string of troubled investments Jared was involved in. He told Trump that Jared should not be in the White House in an official capacity.”

He goes on to paraphrase Priebus, writing, “Nepotism laws existed for a reason. The Mueller investigation was going deeply into Jared’s finances. And it will jump to your finances if it hasn’t already.”

According to Woodward, while Trump generally would have dismissed such advice, that time he responded, “You’re right.”

Ultimately, Kushner was not dismissed but, roughly a month later, Priebus was.
